The Circle Jerks are a punk band from Hermosa Beach, CA that was founded by Keith Morris and Greg Hetson in 1979. They have been on hiatus since 2010.
The Circle Jerks assisted Bad Religion during their early years in a number of ways:
Keith Morris: “The scenario with Bad Religion and the Circle Jerks was that we appreciated each other’s music. There weren’t any assholes in the group. There were no dicks. Everybody was cool."
Bad Religion and The Circle Jerks have played together twelve times. 
While recording Oddities, Abnormalities, and Curiosities the band was wasting a lot of time. Hetson said to them, "We need to get this done. Because, I have to go on Bad Religion duty the moment Greg Graffin snaps his fingers."
